Curtin University leadership and Student Guild representatives have reached an agreement for the Guild to end its presence and logistical support of the encampment at Curtin’s Bentley campus.    

The agreement is consistent with Curtin’s values, governance structures and State and Federal laws. Key elements include reconfirming Curtin’s commitment to being inclusive of students of all faiths and ethnicities, tangible actions to increase transparency around how we uphold international humanitarian law and new training initiatives to improve disclosure to research students of funding sources. We have been consistently clear that Curtin has no direct or indirect investments in manufacturers of weapons of war.

We have also made public the University’s statement.

In turn the Guild will move now to end the encampment and has reiterated its commitment to prioritise the safety and wellbeing of all students.  

Curtin values freedom of speech and has respected the rights of students to peacefully and lawfully protest since the encampment began on 7 May. We have worked hard across many University functions to ensure the wellbeing and safety of our Curtin community.

We have approached recent discussions with a deep respect for our students’ concerns. Curtin and the Guild have a proud history of working in partnership to achieve positive outcomes for our students and we look forward to continuing this into the future.
